"Linux , the free computer operating system invented by Finn Linus Torvalds, made its first big splash at home on Thursday when it was embraced by Finland's leading broadband Internet provider Sonera Entrum.

Entrum, which provides high-speed Internet access for 500,000 private and 70,000 corporate subscribers, said it has replaced 60 different Unix and Windows NT servers from different vendors with a single computer containing 500 virtual servers running Linux software installed by Red Hat and SuSE.

Linux is free, open-source software, which means that all code is public and can be adapted by companies and individuals."
